trail. president obama still focused on the storm. today the campaign is back on. sort of. paul ryan has rallies in wisconsin, the vice president in florida, avoiding questions about fema. >> and i pleerappreciate your n generosity. >> president obama is not back on the campaign trail until tomorrow, he's still dealing with sandy's after math. >> i told the mayors and governors if it they're getting no for an answer somewhere in the federal government, they can call me personally at the white house. >> reporter: today the president visits new jersey where six days before the election, he got a pat on the back from republican rival governor chris christie. >> the president has been outstanding about this. i don't give a damn about election day. >> i don't think anybody thought much about that. >> reporter: the president is not scheduled to visit new york. >> we'd tlouf have him, but we have lots of things to do. i'm in the trying to diss him. >> reporter: after the election, we may see long lines again. early voting resumes again today in maryland and washington, d.c. with power still ou
the campaign is back on sort of. we've got paul ryan who is back out in wisconsin today. vice president biden in florida, and so is governor romney. he's got three stops in florida today. he was in ohio yesterday collecting supplies and thanking supporters for helping those storm victims and also avoiding questions about fema, the federal emergency management agency and their response to the storm. meantime, president obama probably won't be back on the campaign trail until tomorrow in colorado at the earliest. today, as you mentioned, he's visiting new jersey and getting a pat on the pack from new jersey governor chris christie who says the president has done an outstanding job so far with the recovery effort after the storm. meantime, the president will not be visiting new york city. mayor bloomberg says they have a lot to do in terms of trying to handle a presidential visit at this time. >> thanks so much. let's get back to sandy, two of the three major airports serving the new york area will start to reopen late they are morning. the super storm created a worldwide ripple effect for trave
decisive action when lives are at risk. unlike mitt romney and paul ryan, who said that they would bloc grant fema funding to states. states are having fiscal problems and that responsibility would fall to them. it's so unfortunate that we have people that take these ex prem p -- extreme positions just to score political points. when you're in harm's way you don't want a private company that's trying to save money. you want a government that will do what is required to save lives and that's not the policy that mitt romney or his twin paul ryan have advanced while they have been in office. they have done just the opposite unfortunately. >> mayor reed, i'm sorry to press you on this, but isn't that the point of the way these gentlemen have been speaking? this is their patently clear philosophy, and yet when it collides with reality on a day like this, it's not something that the people of america like at all. the idea that we're going to make the responsibility for emergency relief not just in the hands of the states but preferably according to mr. romney in the hands of private businesse
events in virginia yesterday. instead, he joined paul ryan on a bus tour of ohio. >> i know that right now some people in the country are a little nervous about a storm about to hit the coast, and our thoughts and prayers are with the people that find themselves in harm's way. >> of course, it couldn't come at a more important time politically. there's a new tracking poll out. it shows the president aahead of romney 49% to 48%. that's a three point swing in his direction from last week. before we get to politics, i want to bring in meteorologist bill karins to give us the latest on the storm. bill, where sandy is taking a slight left turn, right? >> she started the turn. this is the amazing part of the storm, history-making part of the storm. what's incredible is this is still a hurricane towards the end of october, and not only is it still a hurricane, it looks like it strengthens before landfall. we have 10 hours to go before landfall. this may not be a hybrid storm at landfall. it may be a plain, old hurricane. look at what i'm talking about on the screen. i circled the eye of the s

[ vibrating continues ] our giant store and your little phone. that's progressive mobile. >>> it's generally regarded as the most critical of the toss-up states. ohio is at dead even. president obama had a five-point lead last month. vice president biden will join bill clinton in youngstown this afternoon. on the stump last night romney reached out to 2008 hillary clinton supporters. >> your friends may have votesed last time in the democratic primary. who
, and as a result, those people in this country who want real change from day one are going to vote for paul ryan and myself. and i need [ inaudible ]. >> he's going to cut everybody's taxes 20%, and how are you going to pay for that? we just were told the debt was the biggest problem. if you have a hole to fill, would you dig it deeper before you filled it? >> president clinton and mitt romney still out on the trail today firing up crowds across the battleground states trying to keep their supporters focused on the upcoming election while national attention turns to sandy and the steady progress and joining me for our daily fix is chris cizilla and managing editor of post politics.com. and chris, while this is a complete alteration of the campaign, you've got mitt romney canceling -- one more event in iowa and then cancels tonight in wisconsin, cancels all of tomorrow as does paul ryan. and they have to adjust to, you know, what is the right tone, how do you handle campaigning in the midst of this national disaster? and the president dropping everything and heading back. >> it's -- it's an amazi
campaign events they were to attend today. instead, governor romney and paul ryan will hold what they're calling hurricane relief events in ohio and wisconsin. bill clinton continues campaigning for team obama. he'll be in minnesota and colorado while the president focuses on disaster response from the white house. >> the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives. >> i want to bring in perry bacon and lynn sweet, washington bureau chief for "the chicago sun-times." good morning. >> good morning. >> every word is being used for a political priss sxm thm and t not lost on david axelrod. >> we're obviously going to lose a bunch of campaign time, but that's what has to be and we'll try to make it up on the back end. so for us, it's not a matter of optics. it's a matter of a responsibility and governor romney can decide for himself what he wants to do. >> having said that, lynn, you cannot ignore the calendar. we're a week from election day. what are the stakes for this election? >> well, the highest, if it disru
nominee will join paul ryan tomorrow on the second day of his bus tour through ohio. >> you know it's you. you know what you have in front of you. you know the responsibility. >> reporter: trying to look like it's in the driver's seat the romney campaign launched a fundraising effort to compete in two states the president considers his pennsylvania and minnesota. >> peter, i want to bring in kristen as well and get a sense where things are going now. kristen, let me start with you. ten days to go. you noted this race is essentially deadlocked. what's the obama strategy now down the stretch? >> reporter: well, lester, president obama is focusing his closing argument on the issue of trust. he's kind of made the chase mitt romney can't be trusted, because he said he has moved to the middle on key issues, like taxes, foreign policy and education. the president arguing that he's still the best candidate to get the economy back on track. he continues to enlist former president bill clinton to help. the two will be campaigning together in florida on monday. the one thing looming over the closing
is going to talk about paul ryan. when people in real america call new york a godless place, there's plenty of religion here. but we're less directed by spirituality because in the past we have little history of our days being shaped by acts of god. someone once told me part of my the bible belt is spiritually minded is they have a farming tradition and acts of god have a direct impact on their lives. new york isn't like that but we have gained considerable experience over the past 11 years on how to pull together after tragedy. so there will be families without power and homes damaged by trees and we will help each other out and dig out and move on because that's what family does. anyone who thinks new yorkers aren't a community that looks at itself as a family doesn't know new york. sure we might toss a few elbows in line at whole foods, but what family doesn't fight sometimes? family is supposed to fight, and then come together in crisis and that's what we'll do in the face of sandy. all right. that does it for "the cycle." my brother, martin, it's yours. >> thank you. good afternoon. it
. >> as for mitt romney, he and paul ryan have canceled events tonight and tomorrow, but earlier in ohio governor romney did extend his concern and sympathy. >> on the eastern coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times, and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> indeed. prayers are always important, but even more so if romney were to become president since prayer and the private sector would take the place of the federal emergency management agency as he stated in a tea party debate last year. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case by case basis and some saying maybe we're learning a lesson that states should take on more of a role. absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go any further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> to which one might ask, even better for who, mr. romney? we'll get to our panel for more on the intersection of a hurricane and presidential campaign
event. it's taking place in ohio. paul ryan will drop by campaign offices in hudson and lacrosse, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make that case. if there's a problem with fema's response, if there's a glitch that develops, but i think
which is his running mate paul ryan and house republican positions and those that say it's moral hazard to spend any money on federal disaster relief because we're borrow fromming our kids. if you want to give federal money to private contractors, we're fine with that. >> the remarks he made last year in the primary, he kouchds it in moral terms when nothing brings into sharp focus, more reality and our role as our brother's keeper as times like this. have to field those questions at this time. >> there are no fox holes and no anti-government conservatives in hurricanes. when the hurricane comes everyone wants big brother and help. because there is some problems only government has a scale to respond to and this is one of them. so i think the problem with taking that kind of position on fema some months ago is that sometimes you have hurricanes and the consequences become apparent. >> the question is, richard, there are only a handful of days remaining until november 6th. how does this get -- how much of this gets into the ground water? the romney statement on fema. of course the house
to kick off the second event of the day in south florida. congressman paul ryan is in wisconsin. vice president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to
/state partnership, there are some, and i think paul ryan's in this camp, i'm not sure mitt romney is. >> romney said we ought to defund fema, period. >> privatize this, let states do this, let people take care of it on their own, i think we see a real difference and we're going to be fighting over these federal recovery issues for some time to come. as the governor described it, it is a massive job. >> let's talk about this. more pictures from this afternoon, with governor christie looking on. take a look at how he handled this. i wish he'd been doing a lot more of this before. look at how he handled this sort of meat and potatoes government work and how he describes it here. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. and the directive that i've given and i've said this yesterday, but i will repeat, and i think craig and others who are working with me right now know i mean it, we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and you know, i'
hurricane sandy. mitt romney joins running mate paul ryan in ohio for a bus tour across that state. and on "meet the press," two states, virginia and colorado, seen as holding the key to the election. >> $2 trillion to tand promisinx cuts without any specifics, right? trying to sell a pig in a poke. >> i believe we are currently ahead. internals show us currently ahead. i think romney will carry ohio, and, you know, i haven't been saying this. i know believe it's going to happen. >> a new "washington post" poll shows the race in virginia is getting closer. president obama leads mitt romney by four points. 51% to 47%. president obama, a nod from "the new york times," the paper's editorial board is endorsing him for a second term. and mitt romney, another endorsement of his own. "the des moines register" supporting the republican nominee for president. joining me now, deputy political direct for for "the washington most," anne cornerbl blue. i do want to tell you that it was not a pretty picture as i was getting miked up and finishing makeup. i was on the phone with rick green of the
